Accesskeys

Accesskeys in Mozilla Firefox 3

Alt+Shift+S skips to the main content of each page
Alt+Shift+1 takes you back to the home page
Alt+Shift+2 takes you to Membership page
Alt+Shift+3 takes you to News page
Alt+Shift+4 takes you to the Search box
Alt+Shift+5 takes you to Events page
Alt+Shift+0 takes you to this page.

Internet Explorer 8 : Alt + [Accesskey] then Enter

Opera: Shift + Escape, then [Accesskey]

How do I use Accesskeys?

Each of the main areas has an Accesskey assigned to it. This means that you can use the keyboard to jump to any main area from anywhere else in the site. You don't need a mouse!

Accesskeys work slightly differently on PCs and Macs.
